Another new post of some older painting. I actually finished these around the end of September, but didn’t get around to basing them until this week. They’re based for 28mm Lasalle. Eventually, I’ll find the time to start painting something new again.
This was another attempt at David Imrie’s style of painting, which I really enjoy, both in process and in results. Basically base coating all the colors, glazing with Army Painter Strong Tone, and then highlighting up from there. It gives a nice, dramatic look with really pleasant contrasts, which I think will look really nice on the gaming table. Though it’s not much faster than my standard 3 layer painting for units, it’s simpler, and just alot of fun. And there’s no reason why more time couldn’t be spent adding even more detail and highlight…I just made myself stop so that I could see how effective this could be in painting, in a reasonable time, my mountain of 1815 French. I’ve pretty much concluded that this will be my approach so that I can field a 28mm Lasalle army sometime before the end of the next decade 🙂
These are 28mm Perry Miniatures metals, and hands-down some of my favorite sculpts of theirs.
